Chris Christie places most of the blame on Barak Obama for the problems in Washington DC. Christie made the comment about Obama on Friday in a Republican stronghold town meeting in Vernon, New Jersey, and spoke about many of the problems at the capital.

In fact, he was direct and placed a good amount of the blame on the President.

“We look at Washington, D.C., and we shake our heads in wonder at a president who can’t figure out how to lead, at a Congress that only 11 percent of the people in the last poll I saw approve of the job they’re doing,” he said.

In reference to Obama’s low approval ratings, Christie said, “that’s what happens when you don’t have a leader at the top.”

“That’s what happens when you have someone in the executive office who is more concerned about being right than he’s concerned about getting things done, and I’m not going to be that kind of leader of New Jersey.”

When former Mayor Sally Rinker attempted to thank Christie for working with Obama on the recovery efforts from Hurricane Sandy and talked about to the grievance he took because of it, Christie stopped her.

He said he disagreed with Obama “probably 95 percent of the time” and hadn’t voted for him either time.

“I don’t want him to be president, but it wasn’t my choice,” said Christie, a potential candidate for the presidency in 2016 who had criticized Obama’s leadership on previous occasions.
